One source of meaning in our lives is derived from our relationships. As social animals, the tribe we belong to is incredibly important to our wellbeing. We need people, and people need us.
Our modern lives make us theoretically more connected than ever before, but we also feel more lonely.
Tools like social media and texting mean we can stay in contact with our friends and family more easily, but we all know that quantity ≠ quality. To truly derive the benefits from our relationships, we need to have deep and meaningful connections.
This means that you need to be intentional about your relationships.
Take time to consider who is important to you. Which people bring meaning to your life?
Spend a moment today to reach out and have a quality conversation with one (or more) of those people.
